Akmaro1 just dropped the tip that Target is selling all sorts of $50 airtime cards for $40 this week...20% off face value! So with stacking and such (two $50 cards) it'll net you eight cents a minute or better with T-Mobile, or give you a double minute card for $40 with Tracfone, among other things. Sweet!
By the way, Wednesday I begin my two-day car journey with family up to Golden, Colorado. Because I gotta be there Friday for some stuff...and Tuesday school starts at Colorado School of Mines. Wish me luck\pray for me etc. :)
